HC Deb 05 December 1983 vol 50 c42W
59. Mr. Tom Cox

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will list the London borough councils with which he has discussed the future of the concessionary fares scheme.

Mrs. Chalker

I have had useful discussions with the London Boroughs Association which represents most of the London boroughs. I regret that so far I have not been able to get the views of seven boroughs — Brent, Greenwich, Hackney, Islington, Lambeth, Lewisham and Southwark—as they refuse to discuss a scheme for the benefit of over 250,000 pensioners who live in their areas.
